Our Makers Mark
EVERY PIECE PRODUCED BY TAIT REFLECTS MORE THAN 25 YEARS OF AUTHENTIC DESIGN, QUALITY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP.
One of the earliest forms of trademarking, Makers Marks have been used by craftsmen for centuries to claim and assure responsibility for their work. From silver to stone and porcelain to paintings, Makers Marks are etched in history as means of identifying and revealing the authenticity of a finished piece.
As creators of original and authentic Australian design, we have introduced our own Makers Mark. Inspired by historic hallmarks and seals evident within furniture design and production, the Mark will be applied across our iconic collections. The Tait Makers Mark symbolises Tait’s heritage, established in 1992 by Gordon and Susan Tait.
The contemporary T symbol at the heart of the Tait Makers Mark is a distinct representation of the Tait story. Two structural frames surrounding the T symbolise Tait’s design headquarters and factory rooted in the Australian design industry. The convergence of these two frames represents the unification between Tait’s passionate craftsmen and our collaboration with leading Australian designers.
Only after considerable testing and inspection will a product bear the Tait Makers Mark, applied by pressure the stamp is permanently embossed onto the material. A stitched label featuring the Makers’ Mark is also carefully sewn across Tait’s upholstery and soft furnishings.
As designers and makers of original, authentic and durable Australian outdoor furniture, the Tait Makers Mark forms the final seal of approval in our manufacturing process. Accompanying your purchase, you will receive a Tait Quality of Assurance card. Signed by one of Tait’s expert craftsmen, this card ensures all product quality standards have been met. Following this, the Tait product is authorised to leave the factory floor to be delivered to its new home and enjoyed for generations to come.
Tait’s Makers Mark affirms your piece as one of originality and quality, made to last a lifetime.
